This is going to be a frank but short post.
How many more churches do we need in Joondalup and Malaga? None I reckon.
How many do we need in the harder areas to plant churches? Lots I reckon.
Who is going to go into a tough area and stay there for 20 years, and see God’s light brought to the people who no one else wants?
I reckon we need a strategic plan which simply grabs a map of Perth and puts lighthouses or hospitals representing the active and missional churches. Then look at where the dark underserviced areas are. And make a 20 year plan to see churches planted in those areas, with effective, young, fit, well resourced and passionate people leading them. And those of us who can throw resources at it to see it happen, will.
Too many fat churches in Perth looking after themselves I reckon. (Ouch)
